Fodor's Expert Review La Residence Hotel & Spa

5 Le Loi St., Hue, Thua Thien-Hue, Vietnam Fodor's Choice

Built in the 1930s, this swanky hotel near the river (a French-colonial mansion and two newer wings) is recognized for its service as well as its art deco, jazzy panache. Opt for one of the 10n rooms in the original building housed over the main lobby and cocktail bar. A dramatic staircase winds to circular rooms with hardwood floors, claw-foot tubs, and four-poster beds draped in white curtains. Rooms in the newer section are more traditional and slightly smaller. For pampering, head to the spa or saltwater pool. Breakfast can be enjoyed in the gardens overlooking the river.
